DECEMBER 2017: I am writing a screenplay, commissioned by Heretic Films in Greece, called INSIDE... a kind of thriller set in a billionaire's penthouse. This will keep me busy, onand off, until the end of the year.

I have just finished writing a play, entitled KASHGAR: a historical drama based on some real events that took place in this (now Chinese) city, in the late 1860s.

Further revision continues on a screenplay, writing for and with director Pawel Pawlikowski, our third script together. The script is about the life of Russian writer Eduard Limonov, adapted from the book Limonov, by Emmanel Carrere.

I have found an agent for my novel CATHEDRAL, and in early 2018 will edit the book to prepare it for sending out to publishers.

Meanwhile I have pre-preproduction work (finding locations etc.) on ONE EYE THE MOON, an original script being developed with Warp Films, Post Republic and the BFI. Finally, there is VATAN (FATHERLAND) - the real life story of Musa X; an action-packed biopic that takes in much of recent Turkish and German history - this last project is now a long treatment, written with Atilla Oener. Producer Roshanak Behesht Nedjad is now out looking for development possibilities.
